Increase Opportunities for Regular Participation
Our grassroots cricket programmes provide free, year-round opportunities for sports activity to those who, through living with disabilities or being from disadvantaged communities, often have few. Our kit recycling programme does the same through provision of kit and equipment. We know regular activity is vital for physical and mental health, something that is needed now more than ever due to the current circumstances. Our inclusive programmes encourage those who can often fall outside of typical sports programmes, to re-engage after months of lockdown, take part and succeed.
Our programmes also encourage those from marginalised groups to take part – girls, young carers, those living with physical and learning disabilities, refugees and those excluded from school. Central to our programmes is cricket activity. Through cricket, we support and teach young people to value their own wellbeing, have an active lifestyle and make healthy life choices well into their futures.
